Hello Hockey Families!  
First, we want to thank everyone for participating and contributing to a successful hockey season in Grand Valley.  All of our teams measured their successes individually and  worked as teams to make hockey memories!  


Even though we just finished our season, we need to register our athletes now for the 2015/16 season.  There are a few reasons why we register so early: 1. We need to know how many teams at each level in order to register teams with OMHA, 2. We like to get started with selecting coach and bench staff to avoid the October hustle of trying to get people certified, 3. In order to try out for AAA or AA, one must first register with their home centre and, 4. It gives coaching staff an option to begin summer training with their team.  Registration forms are in and registration is open. Please Coralee Bell [email protected] to register.  You can also register during the following dates: April 12 from 1-3 at Grand Valley Community Centre (upstairs)  and April 27 from 7-9 at Grand Valley Community Centre (downstairs).  Reminder that new registrants must provide a copy of a birth certificate and complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Course before the child is recognized by the OMHA. 
We are accepting coaching applications right now and we plan to have a local and a rep team at every level. Applications are being accepted until April 20 and some positions have already been filled.  The coaching application is available on our website, located under Online Libraries on the right hand side of the screen.  Apply now to avoid being shut out. 
Check out our website under Links for information on Financial Assistance.  If you know of someone that is interested in playing hockey but it isn't in the budget right now, please have them contact us to see how we can help facilitate the process.  Every child has the right to play!
2015/16 promises to be another exciting season for Grand Valley Minor Hockey with many new initiatives to be rolled out, including a once a week Skills Night for each level with intense instruction focusing on the basics, leaving more time during regular practices for the coaches to work on game strategy.  Stay tuned to find out more. 
Be sure to attend the Annual General Membership meeting on April 27 to hear what your volunteers have been up to, how you can help, and what more is in store for Grand Valley Minor Hockey.
